Finnish Power operator granted first-of-kind licence
Finland’s Transport and Communications Agency, Traficom, has granted the country’s first-ever radio licence for a local mobile network.
Such licences are intended for limited local operations, such as those found in factories, ports, airports, power plants and mines.
The approval will enable the power plant operator to develop digitalisation projects use mobile communications technology for specific needs, such as bigger data transfer capacity or new types of network applications.
“Networks of good quality provide a foundation for new services, applications and innovations. It is wonderful that Fortum Power and Heat Oy has, as a pioneer, courageously decided to build its own private mobile network to support its operations and improve their efficiency,” said Traficom’s Director-General, Kirsi Karlamaa.
“I hope that this will serve as an example and open up opportunities also for other business operators.”
“At Loviisa Power Plant, we have been creating different digitalisation solutions promoting the production and safety of the power plant for years,” said Loviisa Power Plant’s IT Manager, Tomas Nystöm.
“The private mobile network and mobile data will enable the utilisation and development of digitalisation even better than before in the entire power plant area.”
